because the constitution says nor shall private property shall be taken for private use without just compensation. they think their home is their castle. a phrase that stems from the 17th century jurist lord cook. unfortunately, over the course of the 20th century, that right to private property has been slowly eroded by a series of decisions that have come from the state supreme courts and the u.s. supreme court. early on in the area of regulatory takings, and more recently in the area of the full use of eminent domain whereby government condemns a person's property, not for use by the public but rather to transfer the title to another private owner for the purpose of economic development, and that's exactly the story that we're here to talk about today in the form of the case that reached the supreme court in 2005 by the name of kelo v. city of new london connecticut. the case arose when the city sought to condemn susette kelo's home and to transfer title to private developers to establish upscale commercial and residential property. sflufsh she fought it all the way to the supreme
